WINTER GARDEN, Fla. – The man who barricaded himself in a home in Winter Garden for several hours on Monday after authorities attempted to serve a warrant will go before a judge on Tuesday.

Eddie Lewis Darby Jr. failed to show up to a March sentencing hearing where he was facing up to 15 years in prison for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of cocaine.

Six hours after the incident started, Darby peacefully surrendered.

Darby now faces additional charges including failure to appear, resisting arrest and false imprisonment.
